Nokia is known to keep its promises of rolling out the latest software updates on time for its devices. All smartphones by the company are a part of the Android One program, which means they get two major Android versions and three years of security patches. As per a new report, the smartphone maker is now pushing out an update to its handsets, which enables Ambient mode in Google Assistant. This feature debuted with a handful of devices including the Nokia 6.2 and Nokia 7.2 smartphones. As per an NPU report, the company is enabling the option on Nokia  6.1, Nokia 6.1 Plus, Nokia 7.1, Nokia 8.1, Nokia 9 PureView and even Nokia 3, Nokia 3.2, and Nokia 4.2. 


It seems to be a server-side feature since one can check if it is available on a device from the Google Assistant settings. To check, you need to go to Settings and access Account Services in the Google option. Here, under Search, navigate to Assistant & Voice. Tap on Google Assistant, then Assistant and scroll down to Assistant device to find the option ‘Phone’. The option, if enabled for your device, will be listed here.

To recall, Ambient Mode for Google Assistant is a new way that Google is trying to integrate its smart assistant in some devices. The option turns on when a device is plugged in and brings forth a UI that turns your device into a smart display. In this mode, a smartphone will display notifications and information from apps like calendar and reminder. One can also control music and their smart home devices. The Ambient Mode was announced for Lenovo Smart Tab M8 HD and Lenovo Yoga Smart Tab tablets when they are docked for charging. Currently, only Nokia handsets are getting the feature, however, we can expect phones from other brands to also receive it.
